PRESS Forward Against Breast Cancer

iGoPink Blog, iGoPink News No Comments

Breast Cancer Charities of America (BCCA) exists for one reason—to eliminate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease.  Our central focus is on educating, empowering and encouraging all women to become pro-active in preventing breast cancer and, if diagnosed, in surviving breast cancer.

We offer leading edge, state-of-the-art, research-backed programs that focus on all that women can do in addition to medical care.  Our services include nutrition, exercise, and social support all the while defusing the fear that often accompanies breast cancer.  And we provide help now with emergency financial assistance to medicines and medical supplies to women in poverty.

Join Breast Cancer Charities as we P-R-E-S-S Forward in the fight against breast cancer….

Prevention

Studies show that 8 of 10 breast cancers can be prevented.   Prevention—not just early detection.  Breast cancer prevention is the new frontier.  Excellent studies show that prevention is possible.  We lead the way with our Vitamin D Promise program.

Research

Though the “New Era Cancer Research Fund” we underwrite less-toxic, minimally-invasive diagnosis and treatment options.  This includes research on topics such as the link between Vitamin D and a reduction in cancer; how food choices impact your body during treatment and studies on Proton Therapy as a first-line treatment.

Education

Education is power in preventing and surviving breast cancer.  From teaching breast self exams to wise exercise, from managing post-treatment side-effects to mobilizing the mind for healing, we guide and support women to actively participate in health and healing.  Our University Education Program teaches students the lifestyle choices they can make at an early age to prevent breast cancer.

Survival

BCCA’s integrated cancer care program supports and complements conventional medical treatment.  The program encompasses the whole person—body, mind and spirit.  While accomplished in addition to conventional medical care, we understand it takes more than medicine to get well and stay well.

Support

When breast cancer strikes, it impacts the entire family and all areas of their life, especially financially.  We have designed our Help Now Fund to assist with the basic needs of cancer patients in need.  The demand is huge and we limit our funding to past-due rents and utilities.  Our commitment: no woman will go through breast cancer without a roof over her head and the basics of daily needs.

 

We PRESS Forward in the fight against breast cancer.  We inspire hope.  We nurture healing.  We renew life.

The Breast Cancer Charities of America.  We are the new voice of breast cancer.  We are passionate, filled with energy and a vision.  And we will not stop until breast cancer is no longer a life-threatening disease.

Join us.  Make your voice heard.  It’s a new day in the world of breast cancer.

The Breast Cancer Charities of America

The Woodlands, TX – June 26, 2014: What do a strappy stiletto and a sauvignon blanc have in common?  What pinot would you pair with platform pumps? These queries and more will be answered when we raise our glasses at the first annual Wine Women & Shoes Houston fundraiser on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at the The Woodlands Waterway Marriot benefiting The Breast Cancer Charities of America.

wws“We speak the language of Barolo AND Manolo!” quips Elaine Honig, Founder of Wine Women & Shoes – the fastest-growing luxury event series created for women by women in the U.S. Now in its eighth year with events in twenty-four cities (and counting), WW&S has helped net $9 million for the various women’s and family-related causes that host this annual fundraiser, which began in Napa Valley.

Approximately 350 wine-savvy, shoe-loving women will kick up their heels for a cause as they gather to sip varietals from some of the country’s top winemakers, shop the latest trends in the multi-designer Marketplace, and swoon over the charming “Shoe Guys” serving up this season’s must-haves on silver platters. WW&S will also feature Shoe Contest, Best Dressed Contest, and Paparazzi Pink Carpet.

From pearls to peep toes, Marketplace designers will include fabulous footwear from Tiffany Jorge, Inc., jewelry by Rustic Cuff and Nihsima, and handbags showcased from Susie O’s – to name a few – while delectable nibbles are provided by The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.
